I disapprove of the rhetoric used in this article, to an extent. While it’s true products made specifically to be environment friendly tend to be worse than their counterparts, implying that is the case with this is clearly false. Albuterol was not made for the purpose of being green, it was made as a medicine and that is the purpose it serves. While apparently, although unknownst to me, also being more environmentally friendly. Which is good, mine’s been overused as of late due to the smoke from the Texas wildfires. I’m officially more environmentally friendly than the Smith County arsonist.
However, this is unfortunate news. For one, I don’t see how that’s theirs to control and they’re assholes for singling out an innocuous medicine. This reeks of lobbyists, doesn’t it?
I won’t be shocked when the cost of my rescue inhaler rises after this, not one bit. Afterall, albuterol manufacturers get to drive out the competition. What’s to prevent them from insanely high prices?
As a sufferer of acute asthma this pisses me off. Like I can afford your shit.
